“Great Queens Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

Laquinta Queens is a nice hotel conveniently located close to the city. (Just a short walk to the train). The staff are great, helpful and pleasant. The breakfast had a good variety to chose from. We have stayed here twice already and plan to return during Thanksgiving.

Good hotel for the money. Good location, close to family and transportation. Only regret that the staff should speak better english so guests can communicate better with them. Do not have anything else to add to my comments.

And I´m not talking about:
- no elevator in the lobby,
- the unhelpful staff,
- the thin walls between the rooms (you can hear everything your neighbor talk...),
- the lousy breakfast,
- no tables available for everybody in breakfast,
- the outdated lobby and rooms,
- no safe in the rooms,
- (...)

I´m talking about the DIRT.
Dirt doors, dirt carpet and dirt bed cover.

Never, ever, I´m going to recomend someone this hotel.

My daughter and I stayed at La Quinta Inn for seven and found the rooms very spaceous clean and comfortable The hotel is situated between 34th and 40th St sub way (we were advised to use 40th st) Towels were changed everyday and sheets were changed twice during our stay The rooms have coffee making facalities and a fridge but NO SAFE which was a bit of a let down
Breakfast was basic but there was no shortage doughnuts, bagals, muffins, bananas, cream cheese, cereal sausages and what I think were eggs as well as juice tea and coffee
We had free internet access and though our reservation said noon check out, hotel policy is 11am We were able to leave our cases in reception until our departure
If staying at La Quinta for longer than two days get a metro card which gives unlimited travel on trains and buses It is only 15mins into Times Square There is a Mc Donalds right next door and a lovely fruit and veg shop two blocks up I would advise the Blitz on 46th St as a great place to eat prices are good and food is great
If you dont mind staying outside the city this hotel is a gem We were on 4th floor and noise was not a problem

Room Tip: Fourth floor was great

My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights in Septmeber. I was nervous about staying here based on many of the not so great reviews, but my bridezilla sister in law insisted we stay here. I have to admit, it was not that bad! When we arrived (before check in time started) our room was not ready, however they let us leave our bags at the front desk and we got some lunch. When we returned, our room was ready. we were in a corner room with 2 queen beds. The room was tight, but very manageable once we put all of our belongings away. If you are a slob, you will find this (and probably any room) too small. The room was very clean. The carpet was fine ( several reviews complained about the carpet) however I never walk barefoot in any hotel room. The bathroom was also very clean. Again, not a lot of counterspace, but if you keep just the essentials out that you need, there is more than enough room to function. The bathroom did have three very bright lights that you could turn on that made the room appear not so confined, I liked that a lot. The hotel is really less than 2 blocks from the #7 subway station. The location of this place really could not have been any better. They do have breakfast in the morning, not a grand spread, but cereal and bagels and juice- several complaints about this, but seriously, what else is there to eat for breakfast? If you're looking for something bigger there is a Pete's diner a block away. We went there once, I thought it was kinda dirty, but people rave about it. Several people commented about the coffee not being good, and that is the truth. So have some juice and grab a coffee at the McDonalds (open 24 hrs by the way)next door on your way to the subway. We did take advantage of the free parking. It's true, it is a small lot in the back of the building and it is first come first serve. Fortunately, we always got a spot. There is some street parking as well. You dont need a car in NYC, please utilize the subway, however, we were in town for a wedding, and my in laws had theirs. There is one small slow elevator, but how many elevators are fast?!?!? it was working, and got us from floor to floor. Our room was right by the stair well, and the door does slam shut, however, not many people used it, so it was not a problem. The front desk staff were ok. Didnt deal with them a lot, but i did notice that most times there was no one at the front desk. There was a computer room with 2 computers and one that prints for free, so that helped when we had to print some tickets! So honestly, it was not that bad. I wasn't expecting to be treated like I was at The Ritz. We were out and about most of the time and had a nice clean room to come home to. Oh, the beds were super comfortable! The maid came every day. The furnace/air conditioner worked well, we were adjustung it as needed. It is nothing glamorous, but it's a decent solid clean place to stay after a busy day in NYC. We also felt safe at night walking home from the subway. There is a CVS down the street as well. I must admit, Im eating crow for not wanting to stay here, but it turned out well.

Room Tip: We faced the back overlooking the parking lot. The subway is in front of the building, so I would im...

I've stayed here on 3 occasions and have been happy overall with my stay. Staff are friendly and it is very close to subway, which goes into Times Square. You can also get the Q60 bus outside down to the Queens mall which has some excellant shops.

The only gripes I have is the noise, the ground floor room I was in was very bad, I think the fact that the airconditioner was mounted through the window was the problem - it just let too much noise in. And the ice cube machine in the hallway makes a lot of noise for no reason.
